taxes, they compromised. now president obama is issuing a no-compromise to the congress, to the american people -- 48% didn't rote for president obama. it's very disrespectful. he should try to bring the republicans together and show leadership and agree if the debt ceiling needs to be raised, the issue has to be addressed. >> no serious people who have talked about the damage that would be inflicted on our country were the debt ceiling to not be raised, not only on our country, but the global economy. yet, as far as political tactics, the president saying,im not going to debate this. is that the right way for this president, as he gets set to kick off term number 2, to engage his colleagues on the other side of the aisle? >> you certainly want the president to be open. i think he is open to hearing all sides, but this is the thing that really gets to me. i think this is a shell game being played with the american people. i do not like it. i think that many americans do not. this is really about austerity, american style. in this budget package, we have more than $4 trillion that have be
evening, everyone. the imperious obama presidency flat out refusing to negotiate with republicans on the national debt ceiing. the republicans led by speaker boehner are determined to take up debt and spending once again. this time he says the american people are on his side. the speaker today in the republican caucus meeting behind closed oors. bigger banner making it clear that the president's refusal to negotiate will not deter him or his party and the speaker said that the president said that he isn't going to have a debate with us over the debt ceiling. he also says that he's not going to cut spending along with a debt limit hike. fiscal cliff behind us on the focus turns to spending. speaker ehr cited a new poll, showing 72% of americans agree with him. but any increase in the de limit must be accompanied by an equal amnt in spending cuts. senator john cornyn saying that if the president intends the president intends to carry through with his no negotiation threat, but a government shutdown may be the only way to find resolution. the new senate majority leader is saying that
concern to americans is chuck hagels former position, maybe president obama's position, on israel. >> right. i think hagel has said really remarkable things, things that i think frankly border on outright anti-semitism so that's going to be a major subject of his confirmation hearing. maybe we'll see what used to be called a confirmation conversion where he attempts to recant those statements. he's done that on another subject, his view of gays and lesbians in public life. he says he has changed his view. he certainly hadn't said anything on that until just before his apparent nomination. so whether he sticks by what he said publicly or whether he recants is going to make for interest confirmation hearing. >> one of the things that leon panetta brought to the post and still does is the fact he hadn't spent time running the c.i.a. in countries like iran where intelligence is scarce, and we're looking at turmoil in syria as well, especially with russia getting involved by bringing in assets, that's something that he doesn't have. so what do you think chuck hagel would bring? what wi
't trigger mr. obama's comment. >> netanyahu's red line. >> that's the bigger question. the israeli tolerance is less than the american tolerance. if the iranians say 90% of the way towards a nuclear weapon, can we live with that? the united states? can the israelis live with that? that might depend in part on what the details are and what degree of inspections or transparency we have and what is the timeline between where they arrive at before they can actually have a nuclear weapon? do we feel we will have other opportunities to interrupt it? that is the big debate of 2013 and what is so interesting about this, more than any other issue. this is the one that affects not just the entire region because it is already on edge for all the reasons that ian and anne-marie mentions. >> i think this president will be different in terms of other presidents in terms of being willing to strike iran because this president came into office determined to move the world away from nuclear weapons. he came in with the idea that if we have 30 countries in the world with nuclear weapons, we're going to blow ou
, will congress and president obama be able to enact a series of measures that will stabilize the american economy for the future? >> i'm going to say yes. i'm just going to say yes. i think 2013 is the year where obama feels strong enough and has learned enough lessons and the country understands what is at stake very fundamentally and the economics are starting to get better. manufacturing is coming back. it's actually coming back from offshore to onshore. we recognize how critical infrastructure is in the wake of sandy and other things. i actually think the ingredients are there. i don't think there is one blinding moment where everybody sort of gets religion and says we're going to do it, but we're going to be on our way back. >> some positive signs. economic growth will probably pick up and a good chance we'll get comprehensive immigration reform in 2013, which would be good for any number of reasons. corporate tax reform. there seems to be bipartisan support for that. will we solve if you will the fiscal challenges of the year, no, we'll still be kicking cans down the road, use whatever clic

and the future that lies ahead. >> that's president obama delivering his victory speech on election night. the race wasn't even close, despite the poor state of the american economy. maybe mitt romney never had a chance. his fellow contenders feasted on one of their own during the primaries. isn't the american way that if somebody gives you a smack on the nose you eventually have to smack them back. isn't it time now for you to accept that this negativity has pounded you into a position where much as you would like to keep it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and gave romney a good old smack? >> harry truman in his great re-election campaign when he was so far behind that gallup quit taking polls in mid september, went after dewey and crowds would yell out give him hell, harry. and he yelled back, no, i just tell the truth and it hurts like hell. i think romney's record is so bad, he's clearly a moderate, he's done so many things that are indefensible in the republican primary. it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it's indefensible.
american democracy? first though president obama back at the white house fresh off the hawaiian family vacation facing a fresh fiscal fight with republicans, even as he and his family return to from hawaii. republicans were firing new shots on the sunday morning talk shots in the battle over raising the nation's debt limit. >> if you raise the debt ceiling by a dollar, you should cut spending by a dollar. that is the way to go forward. >> dealt with the revenue issue. now the question is will the president lead? you know why should we have to be bringing him to the table? why isn't he leading us in the direction of beginning to solve our long-term debt and deficit problem? it's perplexing to me that the president of the united states, elected to lead the country, is so reluctant to engage on the most important issue confronting our future. >> nbc news white house correspondent peter alexander joins us live now. pete, the president has been pretty adamant here in the past saying that he will not compromise over raising the debt ceiling and that reducing the deficit has to include some s
ago 35 percent of -- 95 percent of senate republicans voted for tax release for the american taxpayers and not a single republican senator voted to raise anyone's taxes. >> molly is covering this live from washington, dc. what is the latest? >> rather than private negotiations president obama is drawing public lines in the sand over fiscal fights ahead trying to win over american support with more public campaign-style tactics. for example, looming ahead is the battle over the debt ceiling, the credit card limit, to pay for all of the government spending. we hit the $16.4 trillion limit last week. the president is telling congress to raise the debt ceiling without a fight. >> i will negotiate over many things, i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills they have already racked up through the laws they passed. >> that is stirring up lawmakers with domes backing the president saying there is no need to discuss racing the debt limit while republicans are saying the country needs to pull in its spending and not continue to raise the debt
that the obama doctrine calls for ending american wars and avoiding future ones. it could signal a retreat from america's global leadership. death you have heard president obama say it is time for nation building at home. that is the -- guest: you have heard present a, say it is time for nation building at home. -- president obama say it is time for nation building at home. you can tell he is conflicted about the decision. he announced a deadline for withdrawing the troops as he announced the surge. he said the kind of nation building he is most interested in is our own. you see that he thinks we are in a period where we need to restoration and a lot of restraint because we have been overextended. we need to rebuild our economic vitality. if you look at all of his decisions -- whether it is ending the war in iraq, setting a deadline for troops out of afghanistan by 2014, medicines in getting dragged into future conflicts -- reticence in getting about in future conflicts -- these are organized around the idea that it is time for america to restore because it is overextended. host: from the new y
. the american people do not want it. president obama won reelection campaigning for the middle class. >> i've never seen a compromiser everybody that every but -- everything they wanted or that. i certainly do not like everything i see. i certainly did i get everything that i wanted. i do like the fact that senior citizens can go to the doctors because they are being paid a reasonable rate. i do not like the son of the health programs across the country are being cut. i discussed a few phone calls from two constituents. they did all day could do to convince me to vote against this. until then do you know that 320,000 people in our state relied upon unemployment insurance, benefits adopted? i do not know how i could face those individuals. no idea that they will have a check in the mail. when i go to church i will know that i will see people with the insurance that pretty soon an unemployment check is in the mail. that is one of the reasons why i will vote for this deal because it is good legislation. people need it right now. not next year. not next month. not next month. i yield back. >>
. kids are being sent home for having an american flag on their bike and for punching back somebody who beats the crap out of them. that's the level of kindness. obama is getting bigger and bigger and more government. you can see a wee microcos civil when they go to the school. they have power and what do they do? they tell you you can't go pow. what do you do when you play cowboys and indians? you are dead. how can you play? >> that's good. >> that's amazing. >> pack up yourself and go build a casino. you are finished on this land. >> no, you are dead. >> i like that. bill, did your kids get in trouble for anything like this? >> i am a firm believer in letting the kids go and not being around them at all. when are these schools going to learn that suspension is not punishment dism -- punishment? you know what will happen is every kid is in this school and you got a day off to every single one ity school. when i was a kid we didn't have suspension because i would have done it all the time because i didn't like school. we had detention. you want to punish kids you keep them thereafter sc
catholic american to become president. when you think about him, when historians write about him, that's not by any means the first thing they say. one thing that barack obama has done in opening the door is to make the fact that he's an african-american less important later on. >> okay. michael beschloss, always great talking to you. >>> amid all the wrangling in washington over the nangstion's finances, vice president biden is providing the levity that might land him a reality tv show of his very own. kristen welker takes a look at the west wing's jovial joe. >> anyone else want to be sworn in as senator today? hi, honey, how are you? >> reporter: it's comments like that that compelled thousands of people to log onto the white house's website to ask for a reality tv show starring the ever entertaining and unpredictable veep. >> mularkey, absolute mularkey. >> reporter: maybe not. the petition went up after biden gave an unforgettable performance during the latest swearing in ceremony to the senate. >> congratulations. you're going to be frisked. i want you next to me. i want you next
? >> there is though no president has done it. having president obama at the top of the ticket is fantastic. it's underlined the coalition we have with women, latinos, african-americans, asian americans, native americans have been part of the coalition for a long time. muslims, all the groups the republicans like to hate. obama managed to crystallize the group of people who are going to be america and are growing fast. the problem is, all presidents do this. it's all about them. what's going on with the dnc for the last five years is while obama has been running, in my view, the best campaigns ever run by any president ever, it's extraordinary what they have done, it's all about obama. somehow that has to be transferred through the dnc and get the dnc away from being the re-election vehicle for the president. it always happens. this is not a whack at obama. clinton did it, carter did it. everybody does it. we have to see beyond 2012 and get beyond 2008. this is not about the president. this is about changing the country in a way that can make the country vibrant and whole again. >> thank you so

before he begins his second term president obama may be unvealing his new strategy for dealing with congress. molly henneberg with details now. >> president obama is drawing public lines in the sand over fiscal fights to come, likely trying to win over american support with more public campaign style tactics. for example, looming ahead is the battle over the debt ceiling. essentially the nation's credit card limit to pay for all of the government spending. we hit that $16.4 trillion limit last week and the president here you see him arriving back in washington from his vacation in hawaii, is telling congress to raise the debt ceiling without a fight. >> while i will neglect shale over many things, i will not have another are debate with this congress over are whether or not they should pay the bills that they have already racked up through the laws that they passed. >> that is already stirring up lawmakers with democrats backing the president and saying there is no need to discuss raising the debt limit and republicans saying the country needs to rein in its spending, not conti

with president obama and the congress. the gamesmanship and stagecraft that they substituted for statesmanship by rushing through a last-minute piece of legislation is going to cause about 80% of americans to pay more taxes. and it does absolutely nothing to deal with the real problem of run away spending. of course, since incumbents were sent back at a 94% rate in the past election, voters have to accept their responsibility in this disaster of a government. for those who actually believed president obama's promise that if your income was under $250,000, you wouldn't pay one more dime in taxes. then you probably feel sucker punched because you are going to pay an average of about $1,600 more because of the payroll tax increase. now since the person that you probably work for is going to pay that, plus an
barlett and james steele on booktv. >> caller: thank you for taking my call. the african-american community is really conflicted as to what president obama has done to address our economic concerns, and i see your book "time on the cross." does this book give any basis as to why, um, african-americans seem to do the worst during times of economic distress? >> host: mary, i don't think they wrote a week called -- a book called "time on the cross." >> guest: no, this was on the list -- >> host: oh, i apologize, mary. was this your list? >> guest: yeah. >> host: okay. >> guest: i'll explain this. this was a book done by -- let's go back. literature is filled with references to lawyers. let's, you know, let's kill all the lawyers, you know, from shakespeare forward. h.l. mencken, you name it. everybody wants to do in the lawyers, and i'm sympathetic to that. there's some merit there. but the one at the top of my list is not lawyers, it's economists who i think have done more harm to this country than any other single group. in this particular group, right after reading -- i forget ev
. kennedy stood up to those people . >> 2009 obama had the confer result with the generals pressing him on afghanistan, the serbs there. >> into this, but i want to hear you talk about it. as american foreign policy in a grand sense changed and all? it has been over for more than 20 years now. and is the u.s. still seeing the world as its oyster to be cracked open, so the speech? >> it's your own question. >> i want to hear you talk about it. we assume yes. >> again, not a historian. i came to this from the outside, but it's just a heartbreaker. there was a season of pisa ladies with the reagan and gorbachev reaching some agreements on nuclear arms, and then when bush comes into office in january of '89 and of course dukakis was my choice come and he was leading in the race, but be that as a make and a bush comes in. he has a golden opportunity. this is the german moment. this is -- gorbachev is offering and, as he said, and oyster. take all the soviet troops out of eastern europe. he's going to let nato take over germany, united germany. data can have germany as long as nato doesn't go

will help to educate americans what's going on, but also hold our members accountable and these ads are on capitol hill and have a lot of quotes from obama, from president george w. bush talking about the promises they made to cut spending and they didn't. >> yeah, when do the ads go up. before the fiscal cliff talks or just afterwards? >> they went up actually on new year's eve. and it's basically just to remind everyone of the campaign promises that they made over the course of the past year, i mean, look the at president obama, and we'll take him as an example, when he first came into office back in 2009, the debt was 10 trillion dollars and he promised to cut it by half before the end of the first term and here we are, 16.4 trillion dollars later. same thing for george w. bush, he came into office back in 2001 when the debt was 5 trillion dollars, said he would cut by 2 trillion dollars and didn't quite get that done. >> tucker: so you make a point you don't often hear made at least among small government advocates in washington. it's a bipartisan, it's not just the obama admini
both sides together and do things that need to be done for the future, and the american people will understand since you did it together, it was absolutely necessary. >> it does seem difficult. i want to turn to another issue. there are reports this week that president obama may nominate your former colleague chuck hagel for defense secretary as early as tomorrow. when senator hagel left the senate in 2008, you praised his clear voice and stature on foreign policy and national security. do you stand by that praise? >> well, whoever is nominated for secretary of defense is going to have to have a full understanding of our close relationship with our israeli allies, the iranian threat and the importance of having a robust military. so whoever that is i think will be given a thorough vetting, and if senator hagel is nominated, he'll be subjected to the same kind of review of his credentials as anyone else. >> several of your colleagues have come out against his appointment saying he's not sufficiently supportive of israel or tough enough on iran among other issues. do you share th
republican since the great depression. he was the first italian-american mayor and the city that had been ruled irish democrats for decades. yet a city council that was committed to his destruction just like a republican congress is to barack obama's downfall in his first term. he had to work with those guys and he did work with him. he also machiavelli and university had, he outlasted them. he outmaneuvered them. they refuse to confirm any of his appointments and then there was the famous massacre they called it where the city council at a meeting and they didn't have a quorum because there were three members who had been arrested or indicted or convicted of various crimes such as insurance fraud. and fixing races at a local
not better. under president obama we have had four straight years of $1 trillion deficits. our national debt is now over $16 trillion. we're crushing today's small businesses and the next generations of americans, under a mountain of debt. we're selling their future. and our country's financial independence to china. many of our democrat colleagues just don't seem to get it. throughout the fiscal cliff discussions the president and the democrats who control washington repeatedly refused to take any meaningful steps to make washington li within its means. that position is irresponsible, and fails to acknowledge what every family in america already knows. when you have no money in your account, and your credit cards are maxed out, then the spending must stop. that's the current financial reality facing america aps we turn our attention toward future discussions on the debt limit and the budget we must identify responsible ways to tackle washington's wasteful spending. so as the house returns for the 1 sp 9sdz congress in 2013 our resolution is clear. we're committed to making our economy stron
